Negril is conveniently located about 2 hours (50 miles) from the Donald Sangster Airport in Montego Bay, the closest international airport to Negril.

The name "Negril" is a shortened version of "Negrillo" as it was originally named by the Spanish in 1494. [See History of Jamaica]

The western coastline contains the island's finest beaches, stretching for more than six kilometers along a sandbar at Negril. It is known as the "7-Mile Beach".

For years, Negril's 7 Mile Beach, has been rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world by many travel magazines.

Rick's Cafe is a great place to watch the cliff jumpers or become a cliff jumper yourself. Rick's is considered one of the 1,000 places to go before you die!

Negril is also known and remembered for its nude swimming and sun bathing on the beach which is clearly identified by signs which say "Swimsuits Optional".

The last few years have seen major development along the famed "7 Mile Beach." There are now about 25 different resorts located off of Seven Mile Beach. The resorts includes Couples, Sandals, Beaches, Grand Lido and Hedonism II.

Negril is definitely a great deal of fun and has a bit of everything for both couples and families.

Some of the major attractions and notable palces in an around the Negril area includes:

  • The Lighthouse
  • The Booby Cay
  • The Cliffs at West End

  • The Royal Palm Reserve
